Russia Introduces New GLONASS Constellation Status Website
Home Page of New IAC Website

The Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) has launched a new version of its Information-Analytical Center (IAC) website, probably the best-known and most-used source for real-time information on the GLONASS constellation.

Currently operating in test mode, the site may be accessed at <http://new.glonass-iac.ru/en/index.php>. Among the new features of the IAC website are an interactive access to the GLONASS ftp-archive (the “Archive” section) and a new section with reference information (the “Guide”).

Operated by Roscosmos’s Central Scientific Research Machine Building Institute (TsNIIMash), the new website will continue to provide constellation status for both GLONASS, including ephemeris, precision dilution of position (PDOP) calculations, and visibility zones of satellites. The site also provides notice advisories to GLONASS users and GPS satellite status.
